    Okay, just saw the latest Old Navy commercial where they butchered Rick James' "Super Freak". Previous wrecks include Young MC's "Bust A Move" and The Go-Gos' "Our Lips Are Sealed", to name just a few. Anybody wanna guess which song they ruin next? I'm guessing "The Future's So Bright" from Timbuk3 to hawk their (possible) upcoming crap sunglasses.

    especially at the no commercials or reality tv.

    I concur, throw away your TV, life is better without one.

    some would say the same about computers ;).

    Personally, I've never been a big fan of TV. I love Xena: Warrior Princess as well as Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, though. So I try to catch those as often as possible (Does Xena play anywhere anymore?).

    Hello!!! TiVo or ReplayTV, baby! It's like Firefox and Adblock for TV. :D

    Only about 1% of the programming is appealing to me.

    I don't watch it that much either, to be honest. I meant it more for the annoyance of commercials. Although sometimes I feel out of touch because I never really see most of them! :rolleyes:

    Has anyone read the release of Dr. Harry Frankfurt's (Princeton) best seller "On ********"? It was featured on 60 Minutes last week and the documentary was hilarious. Put CitiBank in with the Old Navy crew. They're all marketeers of BS.

    Pretty much the same with me - except I have a TV and I watch things on the History Channel mostly :D

    I haven't seen the new add or any of the more recent ones. One I did see was the "Lets Get Campy" Geico spoof - that made me laugh...

    Same here but every day I have to listen to people giving each other play-by-play at work. Survivor, CSI, The Apprentice, Who Wants to Marry a Date-Rapist?, etc., etc. And when they say they don't watch all that much, mostly the news, man... that's when I usually turn gray and walk away.

    Back on topic, I second the sunglasses call but I'm betting on that Cory Hart song from '85...
